Doz ier School for Boys has been identied. Forensic experts announced Thursday they used DNA and other tests to make the identi cation of George Owen Smith, who is said to have disappeared from the reform school in 1940 at the age of 14. The cause of Smiths death has not been determined. His remains, which were identied through a matching DNA sample from Smiths sis ter, are reported to have been wrapped in only a burial shroud in a hastily dug grave. Lead researcher Erin Kim merle said while Smiths full story may have died with him, Staff Report Charles Kent has formally announced his candidacy for the District 2 Washing ton County Board of County Commis sioners seat. Kent currently re sides on his familys cattle farm in northwest Washington County, helping oversee its daily operations, but he is a funeral home director by trade. Licensed since 1991, Kent received his degree from the Gupton-Jones College of Mortuary Science in Atlanta. He has overseen funeral home opera tions in Northwest Florida and Alabama since the age of 21, both building funeral homes from the ground up and revital izing struggling establishments to help them once again thrive. He also received his correctional ofcer certication from WashingtonHolmes Technical Center and worked six years collectively at Washington and Holmes Correctional facilities. Kent says its this experience that gives him the business know-how to look out for the countys bottom line while serving the needs of the community with interest and compassion.

By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Over the past two weeks, a horse and a donkey have tested posi tive for the Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEE) here, prompting the Flori da Department of Health in Washington County to issue a warning emphasizing the importance of protection against mosquito-borne diseases. Ofcials generally issue an advisory after at least two cases of the disease have been reported within a two-week span. The virus is transmitted by mosqui toes and can infect humans. People under the age of 15 or over 50 seem to be at greatest risk for severe dis ease. It was not conrmed if the Washington County equines had been vaccinat ed against the disease. There have been at least 40 conrmed cases of EEE in horses throughout Flori da so far this year, but that number will likely climb, according to the Florida Department of Health. Typ ically, the state averages 60 reported equine cases a year, and one or two human cases; however ofcials say the risk of transmission to humans have increased. EEE is one of the most severe mosquito-transmit ted diseases in the United States with about a 33 per cent mortality and signi cant brain damage in most survivors. Death rates for EEE are reported between one-third and two-thirds, depending on the source. It is 90 per cent for horses, but while a vaccine is available for horses, there is not one yet approved for humans. Symptoms of EEE in humans may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness, weakness and confusion.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, August 9, 2014 the university is hopeful identifying his remains will help the family gain closure. We may never know the full circumstances of what happened to Owen or why his case was handled the way it was, said Kimmerle in a press release. But we do know that he now will be buried under his own name and beside family members who longed for answers. According to the univer sity, Smiths mother wrote the school in 1940 inquiring about his well-being. What she received from thenadministrator Millard Da vidson was a letter stating that no one knew where he was. The following January, Smiths family were notied he died after an escape at tempt and was taken to an unmarked grave when they arrived to claim his body. Ofcial records indicate 31 burials at the school, but researchers found the 55 sets of remains during the excavation project. Researchers, who re ceived $190,000 in funding from the state for the proj ect, as well as a $423,528 grant from the U.S. Depart ment of Justice, were given one year to exhume, identify and rebury the remains, as well as locate additional burials at the school. The Dozier project is funded by both the State of Florida and the National Institute of Justice. USF researchers are still asking the public to help identify the remains. Researchers provided a list earlier of children whose remains they believe they have, along with their par ent or guardians name, year received at Dozier, and their last known city of residence. Anyone recognizing a name on the list is asked to contact Master Detective Greg Thomas of the Hills borough County Sheriffs Ofce at 813-247-8678.

I know I havent been able to see everyone, but I look forward to visit ing anyone Ive missed in the near future and listen to their ideas and concerns about the future of Wash ington County. Kent and his wife, Becky, have been married for 15 years. Protect yourself, your family, and animals by taking the following precautions: DRAIN AN D COVER DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, ower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER skin with clothing or repellent. Clothing Wear shoes, socks and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET(N,NDiethyl-mtoluamide), picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. TIPS ON R EPELLEN T USE Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other US Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is ageappropriate. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions. COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house. Special to The News Motorists heading to the gas pumps are nding the cheapest August gas pric es since 2010. The national average price was $2.74, Friday, Aug. 1. Since that time, average prices on Aug. 1 ranged from $3.52 in 2012, to $3.71 in 2011. The current average of $3.50 is three cents cheaper than last week and the discount at the pump should contin ue in the near future. Typically gasoline pric es uctuate in July and Au gust, but for the most part, prices have steadily de clined, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. Oil prices de creased dramatically this week, so theres no reason gas prices should go up any time soon. In fact, if these conditions continue, prices could eventually slip below $3 a gallon by the end of the year. However, unexpected renery outages, a spike in oil prices, or the mere threat of a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could cause gas prices to rise. Oil prices plummeted last week. The price for a barrel of WTI settled at 97.88 on the NYMEX Friday, Aug. 1, $4.21 com pared to a week ago. That was the biggest weekly decline in seven months, and the lowest settlement since February. Rener ies are running at record levels and there is more than enough gasoline in the market, which has helped bring down prices despite multiple overseas conicts. The current average price for a gallon of regu lar unleaded in Florida is $3.41. That is ve cents lower than last week and the cheapest price since February. In Georgia, the average price of $3.40 is three cents under last week and the cheapest price since March. Tennes sees average price of $3.27 is also the cheapest price since March and for cents less than last week.

Its an ideal time for focusing on child safety, and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will do just that by launching its Child Safety Awareness Month. The theme of this inaugural awareness campaign is Every Child is a Human Caution Sign. Whether playing in the yard, riding in the backseat of a vehicle, or waiting at a school bus stop, a child is a human caution sign, said Captain Nancy Rasmussen, Chief of Public Affairs for the Florida Highway Patrol. They are living reminders that we need to slow down, pay attention, and abide by trafc laws for their safety as well as our own. Each week, DHSMV will focus on different trafc related safety issues involving children, such as seatbelts and child restraints, bicyclist and pedestrian tips, school bus safety, and making sure a child is not behind the vehicle when backing up. The Department, in partnership with other state agencies, will be distributing safety reminders, such as: BE ALER T WHILE BACKING Walk around your vehicle to check for children playing. Turn off your radio to better hear your surroundings. Keep your foot on the brake until you completely shift into reverse. Back out slowly. Teach children to never play in, on, around, or under vehicles. Know your vehicles blind spots and look again before backing. BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY While on a bicycle, ride in the same direction as trafc and obey all trafc signs, signals and lane markings. Always use a headlight and taillight at night. Pedestrians should use the sidewalk if there is one; if not, walk on the side of the road facing trafc. Always cross streets where pedestrians are expected, such as corners and crosswalks. And be visible. Wear bright and reective colors on your clothes, shoes and/or wristbands. BUS SAFETY Motorists are required to stop when approaching a school bus that is stopped with its red lights ashing and stop arms extended. The only time trafc approaching an oncoming school bus does not need to stop, is if there is a raised barrier such as a concrete divider or at least ve feet of unpaved space separating the lanes of trafc. Motorists should be alert and watch for children especially near schools, bus stops, school buses, and in school parking lots. At bus stops, children should wait in a safe place away from the road. Children should never walk behind a bus. Remember, stop on red, kids ahead. SEA TBEL TS AND CHILD RESTRAINTS Buckle up. A seatbelt is your vehicles most important safety feature, but it only works if you use it. Florida law requires the use of seat belts by drivers of motor vehicles and all children riding in a vehicle under the age of 18. Keep children in the back seat, at least through age 12, if possible. Front seat air bags, when deployed, can be dangerous to children. A new law taking effect in January 2015 will require children four and ve years of age to ride in a booster seat.

Special to The News The Chipley Lions Club had the pleasure of being the guest of The Kiwanis Club and presented a Lions program. Lions Forrest and Kelly Smith along with Lion Curtis were on hand to represent the Chipley Lions with an informative and educating program. Lion Curtis opened by giving a brief history of Lions International, which was established in 1917 by founder Melvin Jones, a Chicago businessman. The club has since grown to over 1,350,000 members in 46,000 local clubs in over 200 countries and touched millions of lives around the globe. Mr. Jones personal motto, You cant get very far until you start doing something for somebody else has since translated to Our Lions Motto which is simple and direct, We serve. The focus for work for the blind and sight impaired didnt begin until 1925 when Helen Keller addressed the national convention and challenged the Lions to become Knights of the Blind. This has since become a strong direction but Lions also support a vast group of other projects just to name a few, such as diabetes and cancer awareness, hearing conservation and many other youth programs around the world. Our local Chipley Lions was originally established in 1948 with 16 charter members and operated until 1009 when the charter was surrendered for lack of participation, not shortage of members by lack of participation. The Chipley Lions Club was reestablished in 2001 and has since thrived and has had great participation with enthusiastic members that have accomplished every goal that has been set forth by the club and have many more in our vision. Lion Kelly did the important part of the presentation by presenting the technical and optometric side of our effort. She had on hand out sight machine and explained the operation and benet of this outstanding piece of equipment. She also discussed the application and screening process to apply for Lions assistance with exams and glasses. She also discussed the refurbished eyewear program that is processed eyewear that has been locally donated in pickup boxes in our area that are cleaned, processed and screened. Theses glasses have been provided on several out of the country mission trips around the world as well as in the local area to provide immediate corrective vision for needy clients.

1989 Chipley High School graduate Amp Lee dom-inated during schools 1988 football season. From staff reports TALLAHASSEE Former Chi pley High School standout Amp Lee will be inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame at Florida State University on Sept. 5, it was announced recently. Lee will be among seven new members introduced the night before the season-open ing home game of the 2014 football season against The Citadel. He will be joined by 2004 national softball Player of the Year Jessica van der Linden Boulware, top tackler in Sem inole football history Aaron Carter, pioneer in womens athletic Harlien Johnson, one of FSUs greatest swimmers Sara Linke Valentine, base ball star Jeremy Morris and Moore-Stone Award winner Russ Morcom. Lee came to Florida State on a football scholarship in 1989 from Chipley and during three seasons became one of the best, and most popular running backs in FSU history. FSU coaches recognized immediately that Lees unique running style and sure-hand ed receiving ability would t perfectly into the Seminoles system. Lee was remarkably elusive using quick cuts and shifty moves. Lee totaled 290 yards rushing and 272 receiving as a true freshman on FSUs 10-2 Fiesta Bowl champion team in 1989. He scored long touch downs both the rst time he rushed the football and the rst time he caught a pass. He had a breakout season as a sophomore gaining 825 yards on 158 carries and was voted MVP of the inaugural Blockbuster Bowl following FSUs 24-17 win over Penn State. Lee gained 977 yards as junior in 1991, which was the fth best single season mark at FSU at the time. The Semi noles were 11-2 that season and defeated Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl. During Lees three sea sons FSU never nished ranked lower than fourth in the AP poll. His career totals included 2,092 rushing yards and 38 career touchdowns, which is tied for the fourth most TDs in school history. Lee left early for the NFL where he was a second-round draft pick and played nine years with the 49ers, Vikings, Rams and Eagles. During his early years, Lee helped lead the Chipley Tigers to the 1998 District Champi onship with a 9-0 record in the regular season. Lee and his teammates traveled to Mon ticello to play for the Class AA Regional Championships, where they claimed a 17-14 victory. They later came up short in the sectional cham pionship against Williston, but the season is remembered as one of the most successful of that decade.

Jo se ph Ma cL ar en Di st ri ct Ma na ge r Local Washington County News | A5 Saturday, August 9, 2014 New TrophyCatch website meets I Do Special to The News Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission staff was at the worlds larg est tackle trade show when it came to Florida, the Fish ing Capital of the World, in July. ICAST attracted 11,000-plus attendees, all of whom were professionals involved with recreational shing. FWC staff took this op portunity to thank the in dustry for its contributions. They also highlighted the importance of recreational shing in Florida while showcasing programs that benet Florida anglers and resources. Among these are the latest TrophyCatch website and a new I Do campaign. Recreational shing provides an $8.9-billion ben et to the states economy, which supports 79,200 sh ing related jobs, greater than in any other state. Florida shing license fees and federal aid provide criti cal investments to enhance recreational shing and boating. State statutes en sure revenues from fees paid by hunters and sport shers may not be diverted to purposes other than the administration of sh and wildlife programs by the FWC. This is a guarantee that your license money will not be diverted to other purposes. In addition to shing li cense fees, a percentage paid on the purchase of shing equipment and mo torboat fuels, and import duties on boats are placed into a federal trust fund ad ministered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. States and territories are then al located their share based on the number of paid sh ing-license holders and the states land and water area. On the freshwater side, these funds allow the Divi sion of Freshwater Fisher ies Management to produce more than 3 million sport sh per year for stocking public waters, including about 2 million largemouth bass. Biologists evaluate sh populations and an gler use in fresh waters throughout Florida. When combined with public input and research on the ecol ogy, genetics and life his tory of Floridas freshwater sport shes, this informa tion allows the FWC to fo cus management activities, such as habitat restoration, stocking and aquatic plant management, to ensure sustainable use. Boating access and safety also benet. Fuel pur chases for boats are a major source of Sport Fish Resto ration funds, so 15 percent of those dollars go to boating programs. These include an average of 30 boating-ac cess projects annually with local government entities. The FWC also maintains more than 240 boat ramps statewide, and provides location and access infor mation on about 1,700 pub lic boat ramps (MyFWC. com/BoatRamps). Through TrophyCatch, the FWC has partnered with the shing industry to reduce the need for regu lations and to bring extra value to anglers. Rewarding anglers for releasing trophy bass, rather than prohibiting their harvest, accomplishes many of the same goals and has additional benets. Tro phyCatch is a citizen-sci ence, data-collection pro gram that rewards anglers who document and release bass heavier than 8 pounds. By providing valuable re wards, donated by industry partners such as those at ICAST, TrophyCatch ac quires hard-to-obtain infor mation about when, where and how trophy bass are caught in Florida. That in formation helps determine which conservation efforts are most effective. It also encourages live release of trophy bass and keeps the mature females in their na tive waters. Thanks to Brandt In formation Services, a new TrophyCatch website (Tro phyCatchFlorida.com) was introduced at ICAST. Every angler who shes in Florida should go online and regis ter. Registering makes you eligible for a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a Power-Pole shallow-water anchoring system and MotorGuide trolling motor, all donated by the industry to support this conservation effort. While on the site, check out the rules and be sure to have a scale, camera and tape measure with you next time you go shing. If you catch, document and re lease a qualifying bass, you will earn at least $100 in gift cards from Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and/or Rapala, as well as a shirt from Bass King Cloth ing, certicate, decal and bragging rights on the Web and with your social media friends. In recognition of the importance of license fees and SFR funds, the Wild life Foundation of Florida, Florida Sportsman maga zine and other valued part ners also launched the I Do Florida shing license campaign at ICAST (Florid aFishingLicenseCampaig n.com). This campaign en courages all anglers, even those who are exempt, to buy a Florida shing license to contribute directly to im proving shing opportuni ties. Every new paid-license holder, in addition to the cost of the license, helps the FWC attain approximately $8 more from SFR. So you spend $17 but generate $25 to support your sport and conserve our sh and their habitats. Lets buy a license as an investment in the out doors we cherish, said Karl Wickstrom, founder and editor in chief of Florida Sportsman. Think of it not as a burden but a bargain. Go to License.MyFWC.com or call 888-FISH FLORIDA (888-347-4356) to order your license and to ensure ac cess to a lifetime of fun, safe and sustainable shing opportunities. Instant licenses are avail able at License.MyFWC. com or by calling 888-FISHFLORIDA (347-4356).

Turning on mans crash into treasure Special to The News Dreams can come true if you work hard and stay focused. This was a les son recently learned by 14-year-old, Clay White, son of Clint and Wendy White of Chipley. In late spring of this year, White attended the Southern Electric Flying Festival in Ameri cus, Ga. During a ight demon stration, sponsored pilot Andrew Ritschel crashed his 74 inch Edge 540. Fortunately, for White, Ritschel had no further use for the crashed plane, and donated it to White, who had development an interest in the hobby. Whites family said de termination and excite ment were the motivating factors for him to earn the money needed to rebuild the plane, including all of the internal electrical com ponents needed to y. With the help of his fel low pilots, Drew Whitford and Frances Kellison, his dream became a reality on Aug. 3. His mother, Wendy, reports the rst ights that day started out cautiously and slowly, but as his con dence built, and his y ing abilities took over, he entertained a large crowd of friends and family with acrobatic loops, rolls, and spins.

In 1850, a geographer from Great Britain discovered a trail across the isthmus Officials from the U. S. Fr ance England and Colombia explored the area, but the difficulties of tra veling through the jungle discouraged them. A Century of Service A different idea A group from the United States thought a railroad could cross the isthmus. The Panama Railroad was completed in 1855 and was hugely successful. While building the railroad, engineers found a gap in the mountains at Culebra that they thought would offer a perfect setting for a ship canal. Colombia makes a deal At the time, Panama belonged to Colombia. For more than 20 years, governments and engineers argued about the best place to build a canal. A French businessman, Ferdinand de Lesseps, had built the Suez Canal connecting the Mediterranean and Red Seas in Egypt. He thought he could build a similar canal in Panama. Finally, in 1881, construction began. But the conditions in Panama were very different. Equipment rusted quickly in the humid atmosphere. An earthquake damaged the work in progress. Landslides slowed the work and killed or injured workers. Laborers suffered from disease. Finally, de Lesseps and his business partners gave up, and construction stopped on the canal in 1889.

As the U.S. was trying to reach agreements with Colombia about the canal, people in Panama were planning to separate from Colombia. The U.S. agreed to support Panama. In late 1903, U.S. military ships arrived near Coln, Panama, to help defend it against Colombian troops. The Panamians declared independence from Colombia without having to fight. And the United States was able to proceed with building the Panama Canal. Disease One of the biggest obstacles for the workforce was sickness. Malaria and yellow fever, spread by mosquito bites, killed more than 22,000 workers before 1889. In 1904, the United States asked Dr. William C. Gorgas to lead the fight against the deadly diseases. One worker, Alfred E. Dottin, wrote: I saw mosquitoes, I say this without fear of exaggerating, by the thousands attack one man. There were days that we could only work a few hours because of the high fever racking our bodies. Over coming Obstacles Dr. Gorgas attacked the mosquito problem in several ways: fumigating or using fumes of certain chemicals to repel insects quara ntining (KW OR-an -teening), or isola ting, peopl e who were sic k. In just one year, the number of deaths from malaria and yellow fever was greatly reduced. One of the ways Dr. Gorgas worked against mosquitoes was spraying oil on the grass in ditches. The oil would kill larvae or baby mosquitoes, after they hatched from eggs laid on the surface of standing water. photo courtesy University of Florida George A.

OCALA ( AP) The Florida Medical Associa tion, a statewide lobbying group for doctors, has an nounced that it strongly opposes the medical mar ijuana referendum going to voters in November. In a statement re leased Monday, the group said it unanimously voted to oppose the measure at its annual conference in July. The resolution of op position said marijuana should be subject to the same standards as other prescription drugs and be brought to mar ket through the Food and Drug Administra tions process of testing and trials, not a political vote. The group also rejected smoking as a way of tak ing a medication because it posed its own health hazards. The FMA also said vague language in the bal lot amendment would al low healthcare providers with absolutely no training in the ordering of con trolled substances, to or der medical marijuana. The FMA statement went on to say: As an association that repre sents more than 20,000 physicians, we have come together to re ject an amendment that does not have the proper regulations in place, ap proves an unsafe meth od of drug delivery and puts a substance that has drug abuse poten tial in the hands of Flo ridians, if approved in November. FMA also rejects a process whereby initia tives to approve medi cines are decided by methods other than careful science-based review. In a response re leased Monday evening, United for Care, the po litical organization advo cating for medical mari juana, said conclusions about a lack of training for health care providers were premature when the Florida Depart ment of Health would be tasked with writing up regulations to address training and qualica tions after the measure passed. United for Cares statement said: The Associations stance apparently does not take into account the many scientic studies, as well as copious anecdotal evi dence, pointing to the ef cacy of medical marijuana in alleviating symptoms from a wide range of de bilitating diseases and conditions. In our view, oppos ing the reasonable avail ability of this powerful therapeutic tool to the severely ill as outlined by Amendment 2 does not constitute the type of compassionate care that Floridians expect from their physicians.

Local A8 | Washington County News Saturday, August 9, 2014 Man wounded by sheriff shot himself By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.com PANAMA CITY The Springeld man involved in an hour-long, armed standoff with law enforcement Tues day turned his gun on him self after Sheriff Frank McK eithen shot him in the torso, authorities said Wednesday. Bay County Sheriffs deputies had sought Aaron Lepak, 40, in connection with an aggravated bat tery incident that left his wife paralyzed before of cers cornered the armed man Tuesday at the Budget Inn, 3910 U.S. 98. Ofcials initially announced Lepak had died on the scene af ter negotiations became unruly, he waved his re arm in McKeithens direc tion and was subsequently shot in the room, according to BCSO reports. As is the standard pro cedure in ofcer-involved shootings, the Florida Department of Law En forcement (FDLE) is in vestigating the incident, but BCSO released preliminary evi dence Wednesday indicating at least one of Lepaks critical wounds was self-inicted. Maj. Tommy Ford, who had a direct phone line to the room during nego tiations, said McKeithen did not draw his gun until discussions deteriorated and Lepak began waving his rearm in the direc tion of the sheriff, who is a trained hostage or crisis negotiator Sheriff McKeithen felt that in Lepaks mind only one of them was leaving that room alive, Ford said. At that point (McKeithen) drew his rearm and red several times. Lepak fell backward, then placed his pistol in his mouth and red, Ford said. He was not breathing as BCSO medical personnel rushed on the scene. EMS staff were able to regain a pulse en route to a local hospital, where he was ad mitted in critical condition. Lepak remained in critical condition Wednesday. Springeld Police De partment wanted Lepak in connection to a July 27 domestic violence incident between he and his wife, which left Rhonda Lepak permanently disgured. According to the prob able cause afdavit, during an argument at their East Ninth Street home, Aaron Lepak reportedly grabbed Rhonda Lepak and picked her up before placing her in a headlock. When she came to, she couldnt feel her legs and couldnt get up on to her feet, Rhonda Lepak told police. After lying on the ground pleading for help, Aaron Lepak placed her on the sofa. He later carried her to their bedroom. The next day, Rhonda Lepak said she convinced him to call for help and EMS took her to the local hospital where she learned she had been para lyzed, the afdavit stated. She is still under hospi tal care. On Aug. 1, the mother of Aaron Lepak, Catherine Lepak, led a missing person report with Spring eld police before investi gators discovered he was in hiding, Chief Philip Thorne said. He retreated to the Bud get Inn until authorities confronted him Tuesday, and 90 minutes of negotia tions ended in gun re. McKeithen was placed on administrative leave pending FDLEs investi gation, a standard proce dure in a deputy-involved shooting. McKeithen is not bound to that policy, Ford said, but imposed the standard upon himself. BCSO will follow up the FDLE investigation with an administrative investi gation of its own to evalu ate BCSOs response. FRANK MCKEITHEN sheriff AARON LEPAK suspect Legislature to keep new map simple TALLAHASSEE (AP) Flor ida legislators are return ing to the state Capitol with a simple goal: Redraw the states 27 congressional districts with as few chang es as possible. The nine-day spe cial session that kicks off Thursday is being sparked by a judges ruling that found two districts were drawn illegally to benet Republicans. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis last week gave legislators until Aug. 15 to draw up a new map. But instead of ghting either ruling GOP legisla tive leaders have decided to adopt a new congres sional map that calls for changes to just a handful of districts. That map will focus primarily on the two dis tricts agged by the judge: A sprawling district that runs from Jacksonville to Orlando held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown and a cen tral Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. The nal product adopt ed by legislators will likely include targeted xes to the boundaries of those two districts and some changes to adjoining districts. It is improbable they would make widespread changes such as one proposal that calls for shifting Browns district from central Flori da to north Florida. It seems to me what the Legislature ought to do is take the judges ruling seriously and literally and resolve the problems asso ciated with the two districts that he found to be invalid and try to minimize any unintended chaos, Sen ate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday. I dont think we should look for an excuse to set off a chain of dominoes that will cause more confusion or chaos than is necessary. Voters in 2010 passed the Fair Districts amend ment that says legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party. A coalition of groups, including the League of Women Voters, contended that the Repub lican consultants used a shadow process to draw districts that beneted Republicans. The lawsuits alleged that districts all over the state, including ones locat ed in South Florida and the Tampa area, violated the new standards but Lewis only ruled that two were unconstitutional. Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith said its clear that GOP leaders are willing to draw a new map now to avoid the chance that other districts could be declared unconstitutional if a court ght lingered. I think the Republicans got the map they pretty much wanted, said Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. They gure they can do some these little changes and stave off more changes. Once legislators adopt a new map it wont necessari ly end the legal battles. The groups that led the law suit wanted Lewis to draw up a new map and argued unsuccessfully legislators couldnt be trusted to draw up valid maps. One of their attorneys earlier this week said it remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution. Legislative leaders also remain rmly opposed to holding a special election later this year with the new map. They say that the new map shouldnt be imple mented until 2016. Lewis said he is considering or dering a special election after November, but admits he hasnt made up his mind yet. If Lewis did order a spe cial election it would likely trigger a federal lawsuit from the Legislature that argues a state judge doesnt have the authority to order federal elections.

By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso firstname.lastname@example.org P ANAMA CITY BEACH Military and political lead ers gathered on a dusty job site Thursday just outside the fence around Naval Support Activity Panama City to celebrate the be ginning of a project they said will give local veter ans improved access to health care. The ceremony drew dozens of civilians and a handful of spe cial guests, including Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, keynote speaker and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida, former Gov. Bob Graham and sev eral high-ranking ofcials from the military and Department of Veterans Affairs. They came to celebrate the beginning of construc tion on two clinics. The larger of the two, a 30,000square-foot Community Based Outpatient Clinic for the Gulf Coast Veter ans Health Care System, is expected to cost about $8.5 million. The other facility is a 5,300-square-foot clinic for Naval Hospital Pensac ola projected to cost about $1.8 million. Both buildings are tentatively scheduled to be nished by June 30, 2015. The VA stands ready to meet the health needs and to help our veterans, and work with our partners to do so, said Gulf Coast Vet erans Health Care System Director Anthony Dawson. Capt. Maureen Padden, the commanding ofcer of Naval Hospital Pensacola, which is actually a system of 10 clinics in four states, was excited at the pros pect of a new building. What were going to have next is innitely bet ter than what we have now, she said. When construction is complete, the 16 employ ees of the existing Naval hospital facility will move into a building designed with their jobs in mind. Thats not the case with the current building, which is an armory retrotted for use as a clinic, Padden said. Even without a perfect building, those employees are able to treat some 1,400 veterans and another 2,000 civilian employees on the Navy base, Padden said. They prove my ad age that medical ... care is more about the team than the brick-and-mortar building, said Padden. Sen. Nelson said that a study done in the 1980s identied the need for ad ditional clinics in Florida, including the need for one in Northwest Florida. We are part of the ul timate movement in that direction in the dedication that we have today, Nel son said. Ground broken on 2 local VA clinics

Large animal health in summer temperatures Special to The News Our cats and dogs arent the only animals that need special attention during the unbearable summer temperatures; horses and other large animals get hotm too. Although they might not express it in the same way as our domestic pets, heatstroke is still common among large animals, and prevention is the best cure. The important things to consider during summer heat for animals are similar as for humans, said Dr. Leslie Easterwood, assistant clinical professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It is best to provide clean, fresh water at a rate higher than they would be losing due to sweat. The progression from dehydration to heat exhaustion and ultimately heat stroke can occur rapidly. Providing your large animals with access to plenty of water and shade is the most important way to keep their body temperatures under control. Just as with humans and other animals, the higher the temperature or activity level, the more water is required to cool the body. Most horses will consume between 5 and 10 gallons of water per day, and their daily requirement for maintenance is approximately 6 gallons for a 1,000-pound horse, Easterwood said. They will need more if they are exercising or if their housing conditions do not provide for shade or circulation of fresh air. Horses that are not sweating and are overheating can easily have their body temperatures rise to dangerous levels within minutes of exercising in the summer, and their large muscle mass allows them to generate a tremendous amount of heat, making them susceptible to a loss of water and electrolytes through sweat. As the amount of sweat increases, so does the imbalance of body uids and electrolytes. The only increased nutritional requirements for hot weather would be the intake of electrolytes, Easterwood said. Large animals that have access to mineral supplements will generally take in enough electrolytes to account for normal losses, but electrolytes can be added to their daily grain ration if the horse will be sweating excessively or exercising. Since horses cannot tell us directly that they are overheated, we must pay attention to their appearance and behavior in order to distinguish their discomfort. Some signs to look out for are an excessive amount or absence of sweating, increased respiratory rate, depression, lack of appetite, apparent weakness, or disorientation. Horses that are not sweating adequately will start to breathe rapidly in order to try to cool themselves via their respiratory system Easterwood said. This condition is called anyhdrosis and can cause them to overheat while exercising. She explains that these horses are literally trying to blow off steam and cool themselves by taking in air that is cooler than their own body temperature while blowing out the warmer air. Although most horses and other large animals are able to cool themselves by sweating, taking in an adequate amount of water, and staying in the shade, you still should keep an eye out for signs of dehydration or heat exhaustion. Whether your pet whinnies or bleats, barks or purrs, they are counting on you to keep them healthy and comfortable during these hot summer months.

By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 email@example.com PANAMA CITY My shelves are stocked with Ball jars lled with homemade jellies, salsa and pickled products preserved through water bath canning, but the idea of pressure canning had seemed too complicated and dangerous. But Marjorie Moore, Bay County Extension director and Family and Consumer Sciences agent at UF/ IFAS Extension, broke it down for me during a class called Preserve Your Harvest: Canning Basics on a recent Tuesday at the Bay County Extension Ofce. My mother canned and I learned a lot hands-on with colleagues, Moore said. Dont be scared of pressure canning. Be comfortable. The problem is when people turn it on and go to sleep. You have to watch it. Once you do it once, its going to be easier. Its fun; it really is fun. Finding a way to preserve the seasons harvest long has been a goal of mankind. Humans have dried, salted, frozen and fermented food for centuries, but preserving food by canning came along in the late 18th century. Through modern research, techniques have been modied as new safety guidelines have been developed. As more research about canning has been done, safer methods have been used. Only use water bath or pressure canning, said Moore, who added that guidelines even have changed in the past 30 years she has been canning. Research no longer supports canning summer squash yellow crook neck or zucchini. It got inaccurate readings because of the starch in the squash, not consistent throughout the jar, so dont do it. But you can can winter squash. Many of the more than 20 guests in the class had attempted canning, though some with better luck than others. A couple even talked about old family recipes, but Moore warns against this. The major food safety concern for home-canned products is botulism. Botulism grows with or without oxygen. The only thing that kills the spores is a temperature to reach 240 degrees, Moore said. Learn to use science-based recipes. She recommends the USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning ( https://edis.ifas.u.edu/topic canning_food ) and So Easy to Preserve from the Extension at the University of Georgia, which they have tested. Use directions from a reputable source; up-to-date methods should be used. Do not modify; follow directions exactly, said Moore, who also said Ball and Kerr recipes also could be used. Ball has a reference book, which is still reliable, but if you have a problem, you have to contact Ball, she added. Water bath canning is for highacid foods jams, jellies, fruit spreads while pressure canning is for low-acid foods, such as poultry, meat, seafood and vegetables. I have canned mullet. When canning sh, can a fattier type of sh. Ive canned some chicken, and it just takes longer processing time, Moore said. Though water bath canning is done in a large pot on the stove with a lid, pressure canning requires a pressure canner. Since pressure canning is very hands-on, get all of your tools together before beginning. You can get a canner right now around $100 or a little under, Moore said. Equipment also includes a cutting board, knife, tongs, jars, lids, rings, jar lifter, jar funnel, lid wand and bubble freer wand. And be sure to have plenty of hot pads, clean cloths or paper towels on hand. The timer can be a separate timer or one on the stove, but Moore also warned to check your stove manufacturers guidelines, because the stove can get so hot during the canning process. You can only use the lids one time, but you can use the ring over and over if it is not rusted, Moore said. The used rings on our empty Ball jars always have rusted before we could get them washed, dried and put away, but we have had no problems reusing our jars, the biggest expense. Jars should be free of nicks and cracks, which can cause a jar not to seal. Most recipes recommend pints or quarts. You get into smaller jars with jams or jellies, Moore said. Though jars must be sterilized in boiling water for 10 minutes when doing the water bath canning method, those used for pressure canning just need to be washed beforehand. You dont have to worry as much about sterilization with pressure canning because it will reach higher than 212 degrees. You can wash or bleach jars, Moore said. Canning temperatures for lowacid vegetables, meat and poultry in a pressure canner reach between 240 and 250 degrees. One of the things when canning in general is you want the freshest food as possible, said Moore, who explained, If its bad when you get it, then it will be bad when you process it. You dont want to have bruised vegetables you are trying to put away. Also, just because you can can it, doesnt mean you should can it. Does your family like them? Moore asked. If not, then its a waste. Most people like canned greens versus fresh or frozen. Moore peeled and sliced carrots to be canned. You dont want carrots too thick because they can be too brous, she said. According to the recipe from the UF/IFAS Extension, carrots can be processed through pressure canning by a hot pack or cold pack. For the hot pack, Moore simmered sliced carrots in boiling water for 5 minutes before adding to the jar. She used a funnel to help pour the rest of the water in, then a bubble wand to get the air bubbles out. Leave an inch at the top of the jar. Vegetables out of the water will just look a little darker, she said. No table knife or spoon can be used to get the bubbles out. You can reuse the jars, but if you start using metal and scratch the jar, it will etch it and start breaking the jar over time. You could do it with a wood or rubber spatula. (I remembered this after I used a fork to get a fresh pickle out of one of our Ball jars Sunday night.) PRESSURE CANNING DRYING AND FREEZING CLASS What: Learn how to preserve food and herbs through drying and freezing When: 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 14 and 16; 9:45 a.m. registration Where: Bay County Extension Ofce, 2728 E. 14th St., Panama City Cost: Free; open to everyone RSVP: 784-6105 or firstname.lastname@example.org. edu by Aug. 11 Dont blow your top when preserving foods PHO T OS B Y JAN WADDY | PanamaCity.com Marjorie Moore, Bay County Extension director and Family and Consumer Sciences agent at UF/IFAS Extension, prefers a dial gauge pressure canner. At top, the quality of the home-canned food product diminishes after the rst year. FOOD www.chipleypaper.com Saturday, August 9, 2014 A Page 11 Section See CANNING A12
Moore cautions to read the whole recipe and follow it dont deviate. If it says raw pack or hot pack, to me, the raw pack is better, less work, Moore explained. Just pour hot water over the raw vegetables. Boil and keep the lid hot and put it on top and turn the lid, not too tight, just to hold the lid in place. Moore used a 22-quart dial gauge pressure canner for the demonstration. You just need to put about 1 to 2 inches of water in the bottom, unlike 2 to 3 inches above the jars in a hot water bath, she said. Though the Italian green beans were washed and trimmed, they could not be processed at the same time, because the processing time is 5 minutes less on the beans. The heat up and cool down in pressure canners is counted toward heat penetration, so dont quickcool the canner, Moore said. The dial gauge pressure-canner should reach 11 pounds for altitudes of 0 (sea level) to 2,000 feet, but if a weighted-gauge pressure canner is used, it is 10 pounds. The weighted can only do 5, 10 or 15, said Moore, who explained this was built in for extra safety before guidelines were modied. When it pops up in front, let it vent for 10 minutes on top, a steady stream of steam. Then when it reaches 11 pounds pressure, start processing the 20 minutes. Though the timer is set for 20 minutes, you must keep an eye on the pressure, adjusting the heat to make sure it stays at 11 pounds. When we get to 11, dont leave it on high heat because it continues to build up pressure. You have to keep it at 11 pounds; you cant do a lot of things when youre canning, Moore said. After the timer goes off, turn the heat off of the stove and leave the canner alone until it has been completely depressurized. Remove the weight from the vent or open the petcock, then wait 10 minutes and unfasten the lid and remove it facing away from you. Take the jars out with a jar lifter and leave them on a towel on the counter to cool. Let the food sit 12 to 24 hours, then check for the seal. You dont want to make it seal. You will hear it popping. The lids should be curved downward, Moore said. The best storage temperatures for canned foods is between 50 and 70 degrees, but should never reach more than 95 degrees. If you dont have room in a pantry, put it in a box under the bed, but not in the garage, Moore said. They need to be stored inside. For the best quality and avor, Moore recommends using the canned product within a year. Specialists do say it is OK for up to ve years, but the quality diminishes, said Moore, who showed off jars of carrots from 2010, 2012 and 2013. The older carrots were more brown, while the freshest carrots were bright orange. Once the jar is opened and the seal is broken, Moore recommends using low-acid products within a week. Preparing Carrots: Sliced or Diced for Canning Quantity: An average of 17 pounds carrots without tops per canner load of 7 quarts; an average of 11 pounds per canner load of 9 pints Quality: Select small carrots, preferably 1 to 1 inches in diameter. Hot pack: Cover with boiling water; bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes. Fill jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Raw pack: Fill jars tightly with raw carrots, leaving 1-inch headspace. Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart to the jar, if desired. Add hot cooking liquid or water, leaving 1-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process. For hot or raw pack, the process time is 25 minutes for pints and 30 minutes for quarts. In a dial gauge pressurecanner, the pressure should be at 11 pounds for altitudes of 0 to 2,000 feet, and for a weighted-gauge pressure, it is 10 pounds of pressure for 0 to 1,000 feet. After the canner is completely depressurized, remove the weight from the vent port or open the petcock. Wait 10 minutes; then unfasten the lid and remove it carefully. Lift the lid with the underside away from you so that the steam coming out of the canner does not burn your face.

It has become rather normal for me to be in trouble with her. No matter how hard I try not to be, it always is to be. This week was a high point for me getting into trouble. I never relish getting into a pickle with her, but sometimes it is unavoidable. All week long, I had been murmuring and complaining about how hot it was. Ive never seen such hot weather, I grumbled. I dont know how long I can take this hot weather. You would think that someone my age would have learned long ago that some things should not be vocalized. This is America, and we all have the right to speak our mind although much of the time we should not speak our mind aloud; at least, not to the point that someone, especially someone living under the same roof, can hear you. I have found that the thing that enhances romance is the sounds of silence. I guess it was getting a little wearisome with all my complaining, but after all, the weather was really hot. Then, she looked at me and said, If I hear you complain about the weather one more time, Im... Im... Im... The look on her face indicated that she was not at a loss for words; she was just trying to control herself and save herself from early widowhood. I truly respect people who have the ability to control themselves, especially the people who live under our roof. I almost said something, but for some reason I had a ash of temporary sanity. I said nothing, but smiled. I am not boasting here, but I am really good at saying nothing. Even when talking, my wife tells me I am saying nothing. Saying nothing has gotten me out of many a jam, particularly with my wife. There are times when husbands and wives should sit down and have a rather invigorating conversation. Then there are times when the husband should shut up. I never know which time is which. It was then that my wife laid out the facts for me to evaluate. How she can remember everything is simply beyond me. However, how do I know she is actually remembering things as they were and not making them up? It seems, according to her impeccable recollection, that a few months ago I was complaining about how cold it was and anxious for the hot weather to come. You were just as grumpy about how cold it was as you are now about how hot it is. Then she put her hands on her hip and looked at me with that look, and said, I dont mind you complaining about one or the other but I really do mind you complaining about everything. Youre going to have to make up your mind whether you hate the cold or the heat, and then stick to it. That put a new light on the situation, and a new burden on me. Now, according to her latest admonition, I need to choose the heat or the cold. I am tempted, although I know better, to complain about this. I do not think it is fair that I have to choose one or the other. I think I should be able to hate both the cold and the heat. However, here is the problem. If I choose to complain about the heat, then what do I do in the wintertime when it gets cold? Faced with a real dilemma I took it to my good wife and asked, Can I hate the heat in the summer and hate the cold in the winter, if I alternate it every other year? To me this sounded like a very reasonable request. After all, I was accommodating her request and getting in my share of complaining. If you would spend as much time thinking of positive things to say as you do complaining it would be absolutely wonderful. But how can you think of something positive about the heat when you are sweltering? And, how can you think about something positive about the cold when your bones are shivering to death? Mistakenly I told my wife my dilemma. I think I have you gured out, she said. Youre positively negative about everything. There is only one thing worse than having your wife gure you out. There must be, but I cannot think of any thing right now. I will not say my wife is right, only that she is not wrong. I must say I have a tendency to complain about everything. Some people can see the silver lining in every cloud whereas I see a cloud over every silver lining. I guess it is a persons perspective. Thinking along this line, I remembered a verse in the Bible. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Philippians 4:8). Some people (like me) see a glass as half empty while others see it as halffull. There are those few souls (like my wife) who are thankful that there is any water in the glass of all. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.
